We’re very pleased to be able to report that, as at the end of February, we had received ‘pledges’ from thirty people, together totalling £94,720. This is a much faster response than we’d imagined possible. A big thank you to all thirty of you. (The word ‘pledges’ needs inverted commas, because as you will have gathered there is no legal commitment involved at this stage).
£500,000 will be the largest community share issue ever attempted in Britain for community-led housing, but with this very early level of support we’re feeling increasingly confident that we will get there.
